The fundamental reality of myself is not something under my skin, but rather everything outside of it.
Thus in the act of describing it there is no longer merely myself, but rather a field in which it's inevitable to describe the environment I happen to exist in. That so leads to a practical impossibility in a total description of who I am, or what I am capable of doing. But I like to think of myself as a knowledge enthusiast, who has a specific interest in art as a form of engaging, meditating, and communicating.
